Enjoy a foraging walk through the New Forest on the hunt for mushrooms. A fascinating subject and the perfect autumn activity.
This Autumn we are offering half day guided fungi forays to give you a great insight into what to look for and what to avoid. Its worth bearing in mind that there are over 2,000 different mushrooms so identifying them is a real art. We will give you some guiding principles and start you on your path to foraging food.

Each walk starts at 10.00 and we will let you know the starting point the week before . It will always be a New Forest Car Park around the Beaulieu, Lyndhurst area. Each place is £25 for Adults and £20 for over 12′s. Bring a basket with you as you will be able to collect a small quantity of what ever we are lucky enough to find. At the moment there are lots of “chicken in the woods” (seen above) and later in October the parasol mushrooms (below) will be a great addition to your pot.
